R and R being defined as in claim 1. or methylating a compound of the general formula I in which at least one of the radicals R to R stands for hydrogen. or oxidizing compounds of the general formula l in which R stands for an alkyl radical interrupted by S or SO and optionally converting the compounds ob tained subsequently into non toxic acid salts by treating them with non toxic acids.

R. R" and R stand. for example. for the lowmolecular weight radicals methyl. ethyl or one of the isomeric propyl. butyl. amyl and hexyl groups. R may. also. stand for a cyclopentyl. cyclohexyl. cycloheptyl. cyclopentylmethyl. or cyclohexylmethyl radical. ben- Zyl. one of the isomeric phenylethyl or phenylpropyl radicals or one of the isomeric Z-propoxyethyl or 2- butoxyethyl radicals. the 3-methoxypropyl. the 3- ethoxypropyl radical. one of the isomeric 3- propoxypropyl radicals. one of the isomeric Z-propylthioethyl'radicals. one of the isomeric Z-butylthioethyl radical. the 3-methylthiopropyl radical. the 3-ethylthiopropyl radical. the -Z-methylsulfinylethyl radical. the Z-ethylsulfinyl-ethyl radical. one of the isomeric 2-propylsulfinylethyl radicals. one of the isomeric 2-butylsulfinylethyl radicals. one of the isomeric Z-propylsulfonylethyl radicals. one of the isomeric diethylaminopropyl radical. the Z-pyrrolidinoethyl radical. the 3-pyrrolidinopropyl radical. the 2- morpholinoethyl radical. the 3-morpholinopropyl radical. the Z-piperidinoethyl radical. the 3-piperidino propyl radical. or a chlorobenzyl. bromobenzyl. methylbenzyl. ethylbenzyl. methoxybenzyl. or ethoxyhenzyl radical. wherein the substituents of the phenyl ring may be placed in any position. The aromatic ring of the benzyl radical may also carry lsubstituents in any position. for example. R may stand for dichlorobenzyl. chlorobromobenzyl. chloromethylbenzyl. chloromethoxyben- Zyl. dimethylbenzyl. dimethoxybenzyl. methylmethoxybenzyl or piperonyl. and it may also stand for one of the isomeric methoxy-phenyl-ethyl radicals or for the 3- or 4-pyridylmethyl radical. the 2-furylmethyl radical. a 3- or 4-aminobenzyl radical. a 2-. 3- or 4- methylaminobenzyl radical or a 2-. 3- or 4- dimethylaminobenzyl radical.

Furthermore. the group may also stand for a N-methylpiperazino. N- ethylpiperazino. or one of the isomeric N-propylor N- butylpiperazino radicals.

No 5 SO N in which the two radicals X stand for chlorine or bromine atoms. with a corresponding amine. in which reaction only one halogen atom is easily exchanged since the reaction temperatures for replacing the second halogen atom are considerably above the minimum temperature required for the first halogen atom.

According to that method. the starting compounds of the general formulae ll and IV. in which X stands for a fluorine or iodine atom or an alkyl or arylsulfonyloxy radical. may also be prepared. these starting compounds being advantageously derived from compounds of-the general formula VI in which the two radicals X i are identical.

The technical synthesis of the products of the invention is mainly carried out with the intermediates of the general formulae ll and IV in which X stands for a chlorine atom. Starting compounds in which X is a fluorine atom are advantageous if an especially temperaturesensitive basic radical is to be introduced. The fluorine atom can be exchanged against the amino radical in most cases already at temperatures about C below the minimum reaction temperature required for the reaction of the corresponding chlorine compound with the same base.

To prepare the products of the invention of the general formula I in which the two basic radicals are identical. i.e.. if the group stands for the piperazino radical R-xj aand the two radicals R are identical. it is advantageous not to isolate the intermediate products of the general formulae II or IV. but to heat a compound of the general formula VI. preferably the dichloro compound. to temperatures at which both radicals X begin to react successively.

The reaction of the compounds of the general formula [I with ammonia or amines of the general formula III and that of compounds of the general formula IV with piperazino derivatives of the general formula V may be carried out with or without solvents.

When working with the addition ofa solvent. a molar equivalent of the corresponding basic component is sufficient when the acid HX set free is bound by adding at least a molar equivalent ofa tertiary base. for example. triethyl amine. N-ethyl-piperidine. N.N-dimethyl aniline. pyridine or quinoline. or an inorganic base. for example. sodium bicarbonate. potassium carbonate. NaOH or KOH. These additives are not necessary when the basic reactant is a piperazino derivative the second nitrogen atom of which is still basic enough after the reaction to bind the acid HX set free. Generally. when working in a solvent. the addition of a base to the acid compound will be dispensable and the base to be reacted of the formulae III or V will be used in a two to three times molar excess.

When working without solvent an excess amount of the corresponding basic reactant must be used to keep the reaction mixture in the liquid state.

The solvents advantageously used are ethylene glycol. diethylene glycol and the monoor diethers thereof. for example. glycolmonoethyl ether. glycolmonobutyl ether or diethyleneglycoldimethyl ether. because they are miscible with water and chemically inert towards the basic component and have such a high boiling temperature that the reaction need not be effected in an autoclave. Dimethyl formamide. dimethyl acetamide. dimethyl sulfoxide and hexamethyl phosphoric acid triamide may also be used. When the reaction is carried out in an autoclave under pressure. methanol. ethanol and the isomeric propanols and butanols may also be used as solvents in addition to water.

Basic reactants of the general formula V are. for example. N-methyl. N-ethyl. N-(n-propyl). N-isopropyl. N-(n-butyl). N-isobutyl and N-isoamyl. piperazine. Basic reactants of the general formula Ill-may be. in addition to the above piperazine derivatives. for example. ammonia. methyl amine. ethyl amine. n-propyl amine. isopropyl amine. n-butyl amine. isobutyl amine. the isomer amyl and hexyl amines. allyl amine. cyclopentyl amine. cyclohexyl amine. cyclohexylmethyl amine. dimethyl amine. diethylamine. diisopropyl amine. di-nbutyl amine. N-methylethyl amine. N-methyl-isobutyl amine. Zn-butoxyethyl amine. Z-ethylthioethyl amine. pyrrolidine. piperidine. morpholine. benzyl amine. N- methyl-benzyl amine. N-ethyl-benzyl amine. Z-phenyl-ethyl amine. l-phenyl-ethyl amine. 2- methoxy-benzyl amine. 2.4-dimethoxy-benzyl amine. piperonyl amine. N-methylpiperonyl amine. 3.4- dimethoxy-benzyl amine. Z-chlorobenzyl amine. 3- chlorobenzyl amine. N-methyl-4-chlorobenzyl amine. 2.4-dichlorobenzyl amine. Z-methyl-benzyl amine. 4-methylbenzyl-amine. N-ethyl-4-methylbe'nzyl amine. 4-bromo-benzyl amine. 4-dimethylaminobenzyl amine. 3-pyridylmethylmethyl amine. 3-morpholinopropyl amine and Z-piperidino ethyl amine.

The reaction temperatures required are determined by the radical X to be exchanged and by the nature of the basic reactant. When X is a chlorine atom. these temperatures range. from to C. Piperazine derivatives. pyrrolidine. piperidine and morpholine react most easily. whereas the reaction with ammonia and sterically hindered amines occurs most slowly. When replacing the radical Cl for X by tosyloxy or mesyloxy radicals. the reaction temperature must be increased by about 20C. When replacing it by fluorine. the temperature can be reduced by about 30C.

The reaction products of the general formula 1 in which R or R and R each stands for hydrogen atoms are amphoteric and can be dissolved in aqueous lyes and in aqueous acids. Depending on the total number of nitrogen atoms in the two basic substituents. their reaction is neutral to slightly basic. If neither of the radrecrystallized from icals R and R is a hydrogen atom the products of the invention are moderately strong bases. especially when both basic substituents are piperazine derivatives. and can be dissolved as such only in aqueous acids. If the pH is isoelectric. i.e.. in the range of about 7.0 to 9.5. the products of the invention are difficultly soluble in water. The reaction solution. therefore. is advantageously worked up in such a manner that the cooled reaction solution. when it is very viscous. is diluted with methanol or ethanol and the mixture is then introduced in a large amount of water. On adjusting to an isoelectric pH. the product of the invention generally precipitates as crystals. Amorphous precipitates are obtained. in general. if a difficultly \\"ater-soluble basic reaction component is used in excess and therefore. precipitates. too. In such cases the precipitate is advantageously separated by decanting or shaking with ethyl acetate and the crude product is triturated \vith petroleum ether. cyclohexane. diethyl ether or diisopropylether. the amine causing impurities being dissolved and the product of the invention generally remaining as crystals. The amphoteric products of the invention are advantageously purified by recrystallization from water. alcohols or alcohol-water mixtures.

Basic products having sulfonamide groups which each carry two substituents are more advantageously ethyl acetate. ethyl acetatepetroleum ether. butyl acetate. diisopropyl ether. acetonitrile. nitromethane or related solvents.

The compounds obtained which contain a thioether grouping may afterwards be oxidized in usual manner to yield the corresponding sulfoxides or sulfones. or the compounds which contain a sulfoxide grouping may be oxidized to yield the corresponding sulfones.

Oxidization is advantageously carried out with H 0 in glacial acetic acid. For the conversion of a thioether into the sulfoxide. l.l equivalents. and into the sulfone. an excess (about 3 equivalents). of H 0 are used.

In addition to the products specified in the Examples. the following compounds may be prepared according to the invention:

The products of the invention can afterwards be converted in usual manner into therapeutically suitable acid salts or alkali metal salts.

Salts of the compounds according to the invention suitable for therapeutical use are. preferably, acid salts. for example, the hydrochloride. sulfate. phosphate, methane sulfonate. p-toluene-sulfonate. maleate or citrate. For special purposes. alkali metal salts. preferably the monosodium salt or monopotassium salt. are also suitable.

As established by animal tests. the compounds of the invention have marked hypotensive properties and are administered per 05. or by the intraduodenal and intravenous route. They have also a slight effect on dilating the coronary vessels and a positive inotropic effect. Because of the lack of other pharmaceutical properties and their very low toxicity. they are excellent agents for the treatment of high blood pressure, especially of essential hypertonia.

For example, 4-benzylamino-6-(4-methylpiperazin-l-yD-l,3-disulfonamide and the corresbis-diethylamide.

ponding disulfonic acid-bis-dimethyl amide have especially suitable properties.

Suitable dosage unit forms of the preparations are. above all. tablets. dragees. capsules and suppositories which may contain per dosage unit between 10 and 200 mg ofthe active substance. either in free form or in the form of the almvementioned acid salts or alkali metal salts. in which case the dosage unit may contain up to percent of the usual fillers and carriers.

For intravenous administration. there are especially used aqueous solutions of the acid salts of the compounds according to the invention in the form of ampoules having a content of 2 to 50 mg of the active substance in question.

All these preparations may contain other therapeutically active components suitable for the treatment of high blood pressure. for example. tranquilizers. such as mcprobam ate or barbiturates. and above all. saluretics. for example. furosemide or hydrochlorothiazide.
